Despite the CNB hiking rates twice over the summer, the koruna remains rather weak while core inflation is accelerating on the back of rising wages. The CNB’s forecasts assume one more hike in the third quarter, and the market has already priced it in. We expected a hawkish outcome from the latest CNB meeting that would see the koruna strengthen. However, although the bank’s short-term outlook did prove hawkish, the FX market has not reacted. We change our CNB call in accordance with the market view of September hike. We still expect another hike in November.
